Bacon and Egg Slice

by Adrianne

Bacon and Egg Slice is a healthy recipe that is packed with veggies. Similar to our Zucchini and Bacon Slice and our Gluten Free Zucchini Slice recipes, but this time for the bacon and egg fans!!

Perfect for breakfast, brunch or lunch, this bacon and egg slice is going to be your new favourite savory recipe.

This recipe is similar to both our Mini Quiches and our Tater Tot Breakfast Frittata recipe. For each of these, we have use a largely egg based recipe to create utter deliciousness.

The common denominator across each of these recipes and our bacon and egg one is creating no pastry slices. 

About bacon and egg slice

There are a few similar looking egg based recipes that are easy to confuse.

Eggs, bacon, veggies, quick and easy yes please!!

A quiche generally has a crust to it, made from pastry or bread (a good example is our Mini Quiches). On the other hand a frittata doesn’t have a crust (like in the Tater Tot Breakfast Frittata). This bacon and egg slice, could equally be called a bacon and egg frittata (it is very similar in method to our Pumpkin Frittata).

As we so commonly know of zucchini slice in Australia being an egg based slice recipe using loads of zucchini. I think more people are familiar with this recipe as a slice and not a frittata though. Am I right?

In my experience to get flavour into savoury dishes a combination of seasoning and cheese work well.

Serve this slice with some sriracha sauce and you will find this combo is the bomb diggity of savory vegetable slices!!

How do you make bacon and egg slice

Making a bacon and egg slice is super easy! The process is very similar to our Gluten Free Zucchini Slice.

All we have to do is prep our ingredients, get everything into the slice pan and cook it in the oven!

It is so straightforward and such a quick and easy recipe for lunches, snacks or gatherings.

We start with simple ingredients. Healthy and gluten free. 

The photo below shows you exactly what you need to make this slice:

  1. bacon
  2. eggs
  3. red, yellow and green capsicum
  4. cream
  5. cheese
  6. shallots
  7. dried onion
  8. garlic powder
  9. salt
  10. pepper

Bacon and egg slice ingredients

Save yourself some hassle and buy pre diced bacon, it is usually in the fridge section at the supermarket!

We want to have flavour in the bacon and egg slice, to achieve that we use dried onion, garlic powder, salt and pepper for seasoning.

How to make bacon and egg slice

Here is how to make bacon and egg slice with step by step instructions.

We start by slicing our veggies up, one by one.

I know the pic here is repetitive, but it is what you have to do to get your veggies ready!

My preference is to use fresh veggies for this slice when I make it as I often freeze it later. Fresh veggies freeze and reheat very well!

 Next we need to combine our bacon and veggies

The photo below shows you these steps.

It is as easy as:

  • adding the bacon to a mixing bowl
  • transferring our capsicum on top
  • adding our shallots
  • stirring to combine

These steps are shown in the photo below.

Notes

  • Note 1 dried onion can be found in the herbs and spices aisle at the supermarket. It is easy to cook with, provides great flavour but doesn't involve the time and tears regular onions do. 
  • Note 2 The size of your baking dish WILL make a difference for this recipe. I used a small baking dish with the following dimensions, 28 x 17.5 x 5 cm (shown in the photos). The actual type of dish won't matter ie you could use a skillet, a baking tray, a slice tray. BUT, the recipe is designed so that you get a thickish piece of slice. If you use a bigger tray than the one I did, you will get a thinner slice. You can use a smaller one ( ie my skillet is 26cm, but when I use that I only do 6 eggs). I would recommend you use something similar to the measurements in either of these 2 dishes. Obviously don't run out and buy anything just for one recipe or because you worry it needs to be that size. There is flexibility in the recipe for different uses of dishes, but what would not be a good idea is for you to use a 35 cm casserole dish for example. It will be too large and your slice will be as thin as an omelette. If using a much smaller baking tray or slice tray, you can use 6 eggs and if you fo this, then use 1/2 cup cheese and 1/2 cup cream.
  • Note 3 Egg slices are notoriously difficult to cut when they are hot. You are best off removing the slice from the oven and leaving it to cool for a few mins (5) before you cut it. This will make your slice pieces more presentable and the same for your slice edges.
